Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-055
Budget: 06/19/07 - 12/31/07

High Power Vacuum Electron Devices (VEDs) used in military radar, electronic attack, and in both military and civilian communications systems as well as the high power physics community require electron beam currents in the range from a few to several tens of amperes, pulling from typical thermionic cathodes from 5 to 20 amps/cm2 (A/cm2). Exist...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-295
Budget: 09/30/05 - 07/31/08

Starmark has teamed with Ktech Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories to demonstrate an enhancement of x-ray yield on the Decade Radiation Test Facility by means of electrically driven flux compression. The team will use novel stable skinny-armature and inside-out designs, which were developed and demonstrated successfully in Phase I....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-295
Budget: 05/21/04 - 02/21/05

Starmark has teamed with the Naval Research Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories to demonstrate electrically driven flux compression (FC) on NRL's Hawk Pulsed Power Test Facility. The team will use novel stable "skinny-armature" and "inside-out" FC designs developed for DTRA by the Starmark key personnel. The feasibility experiments will...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-046
Budget: 07/31/03 - 01/27/04

The Phase I objective is to identify and parameterize the engagement tactics that will be most effective in the nuclear environments of salvage-fuzed and impact-fuzed ballistic missiles. Engagement tactics to be analyzed will include innovative firing tactics, such as shoot-no-look-shoot with variable laddered-down salvos, and flyout patterns t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-108
Budget: 11/05/01 - 06/05/01

We have demonstrated a capability with ultrasound to detect and locate even stationary persons through certain interior walls at ranges up to about 8'. The Phase I program objective is to develop and demonstrate a proprietary high-power upgrade to this capability. Starmark's novel system concept should increase the power of the recently develo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Topic: DTRA00-018
Budget: 05/02/00 - 12/02/00

Starmark and Maxwell Systems Division have teamed to demonstrate the feasibility of using flux compression to achieve pulse sharpening and power compression in Next Generation Machines (NGMs) and to demonstrate that flux compression can be a simple, robust, efficient, and reliable means of doing so. Using flux compression for pulse sharpening o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Budget: 09/30/95 - 08/15/96

The Phase I objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of a soft-x-ray microscope and recording medium that will offer order-of-magnitude improvements in size, weight, cost, simplicity, and ease of use over conventional x-ray microscopes. The specific aims of our Phase I research are: (1) to build and t...
